    In a tour-de-force that is both an homage to an immortal work of literature and a modern masterpiece about the quest for love and family, Booker Prize-winning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie has created a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age. ​Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman obsessed with television, who falls in impossible love with the TV star Salman R. Together with his (imaginary) son Sancho, Quichotte sets off on a picaresque quest across America to prove worthy of her hand, gallantly braving the tragicomic perils of an age where 'Anything-Can-Happen'. Meanwhile his creator, in a midlife crisis, has equally urgent challenges of his own.

    SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019

     In a tour-de-force that is both an homage to an immortal work of literature and a modern masterpiece about the quest for love and family, Booker Prize-winning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie has created a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age.

    Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman obsessed with television, who falls in impossible love with the TV star Salman R. Together with his (imaginary) son Sancho, Quichotte sets off on a picaresque quest across America to prove worthy of her hand, gallantly braving the tragicomic perils of an age where 'Anything-Can-Happen'. Meanwhile his creator, in a midlife crisis, has equally urgent challenges of his own.

    Just as Cervantes wrote Don Quixote to satirise the culture of his time, Rushdie takes the reader on a wild ride through a country on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse, with the kind of storytelling magic that is the hallmark of his work. The fully realised lives of DuChamp and Quichotte intertwine in a profoundly human quest for love and a wickedly entertaining portrait of an age in which fact is so often indiscernible from fiction.

    O avtorju

    -Salman Rushdie-

    Salman Rushdie, enfant terrible sodobnega literarnega sveta, se je predvsem po tistem, ko so iranske oblasti zaradi romana Satanski stihi zanj razglasile fatvo, s svojimi deli redno pojavljal na skoraj vseh seznamih finalistov za najuglednejše svetovne literarne nagrade. Med njimi, poleg Bookerjeve nagrade, velja omeniti nagrado »booker bookerjev« za roman Otroci polnoči (2008), britanska kraljica pa ga je celo razglasila za viteza. Tla pod njenimi nogami je eden najbolj branih Rushdiejevih romanov, predvsem zaradi glavne teme alternativne zgodovine popularne glasbe, ki je tudi dobra metafora Rushdiejevega pisanja na splošno. Avtor, ki v romanih skoraj nikoli ne obide Indije, je znan predvsem po političnih, postkolonialnih temah, ki jih v svojih delih vedno mojstrsko poveže z življenjem slehernika. Kljub temu, da njegovi romani veljajo za svetovno klasiko, imajo tudi nezgrešljivo značilnost trivialne literature – izredno široko množico bralcev.
